Food. Drinks. Gorgeous flowers. A great cause.

Rappahannock Adult Activities‘ annual Garden Party gives you first dibs on the popular plants grown by adults with developmental disability, with help from volunteers from the Master Gardener Association of the Rappahannock Area.

Your garden will bloom, and our day support participants will flourish. The festivities start the night before our spring plant sale. Friday morning, customers will be waiting for the sale to open, to get the best selection of vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Garden Partygoers will get a jump on that, and will be able to purchase plants Thursday night. They will also enjoy food from the Community Cafe, a wonderful project by Micah Ecumenical Ministries, beer from Spencer Devon Brewing, and other drinks throughout the party.

You’ll get to mingle with other garden aficionados and people who care about helping adults with developmental disability thrive in our community.

Tickets cost $35, which includes the food, drinks, and fun. You can order them online or by calling 540-373-7643.

All proceeds help adults with developmental disability enjoy community activities. The money provides community activities and events for participants of our day support program. This service helps about 150 adults with developmental disability develop hobbies, passions, skills, and friendships. 

Assistant Coordinator of Day Services Nathan Reese said:

The mission of our program is to support all individuals with a developmental disability, no matter how significant their barriers are. Each day, we want them to have the best day they could possibly have.

Our popular plant sale is continuing but with some changes to ensure everyone's safety. Please order ahead and your plants will be waiting for you when you drive up.
